The olive branch symbol originated all the way back in ancient Greek mythology with the goddess Athena, and continued with the ancient Greek tradition of brides and olympic winners wearing 'crowns' of olive branches.
Very early on, Christians established the combined symbol of an olive branch and a dove as a symbol of peace.
To this day the olive branch is still used as a symbol of peace and offered as a peaceful gesture to foes to forgive and forget and “let bygones be bygones”.
The simplicity of these earrings reflects the sincerity of a wish for peace, but it also retains the classical beauty of the olympic winner's award.
